Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
0% Radioflash (2019) Radioflash is a film at war with its own ideas, its central themes in conflict with one another and its plot spiralling out in complexity as film progresses.‐ Screen Queens

62% The Furies (2019) The Furies game of cat and mouse is hardly a wildly original tale, but the sheer volume of its participants makes for some seriously entertaining horror.‐ Screen Queens

59% Tales from the Lodge (2019) Coming in at just over 90 minutes, it's a surprise that Tales from the Lodge feels so crawlingly long for a film split down into multiple bite-size sections.‐ Screen Queens

73% Low Tide (2019) Low Tide knows where it came from but adequately avoids succumbing to nostalgia. Instead, Kevin McMullin paints a darker portrait of the forgotten youth of the Jersey Shore that is as violent as it is strangely charming...‐ Screen Queens

96% Harpoon (2019) It gets gross, and it gets weird. While its gore can be stomach-churning in pretty much every instance it is on display, the dark humour remains the most brilliantly sick part ‐ Screen Queens

100% After Midnight (Something Else) (2020) This isn't so much a film about a doomed relationship, its about holding yourself accountable and saving yourself first.‐ Screen Queens

17% Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire (2019) Hell House LLC is far from a terrible offering. When its good, its skin-crawlingly terrifying, but when its bad its like a student film with a Marvel mindset of 'world expansion'.‐ Screen Queens

89% Riot Girls (2019) Vuckovic revels in displays of punk, anarchy and androgyny through a fun sci-fi splatter story that exacerbates the already extreme mindsets of teenagers where every small decision is life or death...‐ Screen Queens

100% One Cut of the Dead (Kamera o tomeru na!) (2019) One Cut of the Dead doesn't even have to attempt anything new with traditional zombie lore, but the ingenious way its story is told is a revitalisation worthy of praise. ‐ Screen Queens

25% Madness in the Method (2019) It seems that in this sense, perhaps Mewes would have been better off in making his debut about someone other than himself...‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Aug 29, 2019
100% Feral (2019) With its staggeringly beautiful cinematography of down-and-dirty New York and a layered central performance, Adam Wonder's debut feature is a complex and dynamic look at social outliers and how we find the means to survive. ‐ Screen Queens

86% Luz (2019) Impressive in both its visuals and sound design that echoes off the highest points of 70s Giallo, Luz still manages to feel entirely unique.‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2019
88% Freaks (2019) Lipovsky and Stein infuse their sci-fi with a well-meaning socially conscious message that suffers from its need to appeal to current audiences, but nonetheless delivers a thrilling mystery to satisfy an appetite for something a little surprising.‐ Screen Queens

82% Homewrecker (2019) Homewrecker is so confident in letting its two leads run wild that its difficult to not be dragged into the cat-fight.‐ Screen Queens

59% Charlie Says (2019) The cultural weight of the Manson Family Murders...will always be a tough, almost unexplainable mindset to recreate and explain from both the women and Manson himself, but Harron is adept at turning the tables to present a fresh and feminist perspective.‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Jul 25, 2019
50% Deadcon (2019) A yawn-inducing script throws in tired tropes to mix with a topic chosen solely to feel culturally relevant; a social-media misfire that isn't worth subscribing to.‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2019
No Score Yet The Last to See Them (Gli ultimi a vederli vivere) (2019) Sadly, the dreary pacifist approach on display in The Last to See Them very quickly feels like a non-event in its familiar home-invasion set-up.‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2019
61% Trespassers (2019) Trespassers is a tightly-knit home invasion thriller that doesn't stray too far from the well-trodden path, but plants enough moments to shock and surprise.‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2019
22% Sadako (2019) Sadako is a tired regurgitation of the glory days of J-horror that relies too much on its audience's nostalgia to coast by.‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2019
89% Arctic (2019) By taking the naturalistic approach, Penna manages to do what most first-time directors cannot: show restraint. ‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2019
84% The Art of Self-Defense (2019) Stearn handles the subject with just enough tongue-in-cheek bleak humour to quiz even the most sceptical of minds.‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Jul 19, 2019
50% Boar (2017) Boar is nothing more and nothing less than what it says on the tin: a gruesome creature feature that's as Australian as it gets. ‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Jun 13, 2019
67% Knives and Skin (2019) The film's approach to narrative structure is both messy and strangely confident and alluring, poising Knives and Skin as a bold and complicated cross-genre anomaly, much like the women Reeder lovingly depicts.‐ Screen Queens

73% The Perfection (2019) The Perfection works well as something to laugh about with your mates on a Friday night.‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted May 29, 2019
No Score Yet House of Sweat and Tears (Casa de sudor y lágrimas) (2018) House of Sweat and Tears deftly conjures its disturbing imagery but never escalates to propel its story, or characters, further.‐ Screen Queens

85% Tater Tot & Patton (2019) Here Kightlinger creates a quiet and subtle take on addiction and familial bonds. Its rural location adds a sense of vastness and beauty that heightens emotions and allows sole focus on its actors.‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted May 16, 2019
3/5 82% Level 16 (2019) The film remains uncomplicated by never reaching for anything more complex than commentary on female beauty standards and historical ideals about women's behaviour; but it is confident in its standpoint and delivers them to eerie effect‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted May 13, 2019
75% I Trapped The Devil (2019) I Trapped The Devil never really seems to take off, its moody meditation about the nature of good and evil only proves satisfying for a limited run.‐ Screen Queens

42% Thriller (2018) Thriller re-imagines the slasher movie from a modern black perspective, envisioning the boogeyman as just another young black man in a hoodie.‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Apr 15, 2019
2/5 17% Look Away (2018) It might not be the savviest horror ever made due to its juvenile messaging, but its clean and cold aesthetics and villainous characters just about manage to pull it through.‐ VultureHound

66% Lizzie (2018) While not the gruesome horror that many fans...might have hoped for, the restraint and respect for the finer details and speculations of Lizzie's case are to be admired‐ Screen Queens

57% Pet Sematary (2019) While confident in its visuals and distressing performances, it oftentimes feels rushed or with some cool opportunities left unexplored. ‐ Screen Queens

81% The Wind (2019) ...an unknown intruder threatening their safety, sanity, and sanctuary. Emma Tammi skilfully entwines the typically male-dominated western genre with feminine paranoia‐ Screen Queens

3/5 89% Prospect (2018) Confident in its sci-fi knowledge from the 60s to present day indies likeMoon, Prospect acknowledges these references and schemas but confidently creates something fresh and vibrant. ‐ VultureHound

3.5/5 93% The Old Man & the Gun (2018) The Old Man & the Gun is a light-hearted and delightful crime caper; a charming ode to legends and how we remember them‐ VultureHound

100% The Unthinkable (Den blomstertid nu kommer) (2018) the slow-burn nature of The Unthinkable delivers a great sense of heart, longing and desperation with sharp action sequences that outshine its minimal budget.‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Mar 25, 2019
80% Knife + Heart (Un couteau dans le coeur) (2019) Knife + Heart definitely wasn't made for a mass audience but its neon drenched mix of slasher, fantasy and 70s porn delivers all the trimmings needed for a cult audience‐ Screen Queens

No Score Yet Clickbait (2019) The references the film reaches for are plain to see and the message certainly not lost, but it's definitely been done before in a much tighter way.‐ Screen Queens

3/5 100% Next of Kin, (Hell House) (1982) Hugely endearing in its lingering twisted visuals and sharp score, what Next of Kin lacks is a depth of character‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2019
3 44% A Trip to the Moon (Un viaje a la Luna) (2018) ...the balance it strikes between its reality and fantasy worlds seems too disjointed to remain endearing throughout‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2019
4/5 81% Overlord (2018) Overlord... is a thrilling action-horror laden with nail-biting intensity and effects that elevates itself way above the B-Movie references it lovingly covets.‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2019
2/5 41% Slaughterhouse Rulez (2018) Slaughterhouse Rulez suffers from a lack of balance, its comedy is deafening unoriginal and its horror barely exists.‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2019
50% Escape Room (2019) Escape Room manages to lock into current social trends and exploits the anxiety that could potentially surround them, delivering a largely exhilarating ride that feels quite different within its genre.‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2019
80% Holiday (2018) Depictions of violence against women do little to allow its character autonomy and there is only so much room for provocation until... the story needs a sense of momentum‐ VultureHound
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2019
80% 30 Miles from Nowhere (2018) One of the films greatest successes are its subtleties, Koller's ability to not give in to an Evil Dead style bloodbath finale makes... a smart and unexpected ending to make space for that appreciation of realism‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Feb 17, 2019
84% Rust Creek (2019) Rust Creek lays out a web of corruption in its multi-faceted approach to the survival thriller, diminishing genre conventions with its raw style. ‐ Screen Queens

0% Marfa Girl 2 (2018) ...unfortunately for Marfa Girl 2, physicality is favoured over soul and [Clark's] characters continue to not care about their lives, so why should we either?‐ Screen Queens
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2018
No Score Yet Escape Room (2017) annoying characters pulled straight out of the worst noughties slasher film and a script that feels underdeveloped, Escape Room has neither the tricks nor the timing to stand out.‐ Screen Queens
